CLASSIC!!

Donald Trump has nominated Andrew Puzder, millionaire CEO of CKE Restaurants, as Secretary of Labor. Puzder, who runs the Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. chains, is a well-known opponent of minimum wage increases and of mandatory overtime pay for salaried employees. As Secretary of Labor, Puzder will be positioned to advance policies on minimum wages, wage equality, unemployment benefits and occupational safety.

Puzder has been a particularly vocal critic of raising the minimum wage, stating that doing so would merely provide an incentive for restaurant owners to automate service. At the same time, he has stated in multiple interviews with business publications that he supports fully automating restaurants. In an interview with Business Insider in March of this year, he stated, “I want to try it. We could have a restaurant that’s focused on all-natural products... where you order on a kiosk, you pay with a credit or debit card, your order pops up, and you never see a person.”

He also opposes guaranteeing overtime for poorly-paid salaried employees, such as the men and women who manage his restaurants. Puzder’s industry relies heavily on workers making poverty-level wages. Line cooks, cashiers and shift managers at a Hardee’s restaurant typically make between $7.74—just above minimum wage—and $9.00 an hour. Restaurant managers, who work more than 50 hours weekly, earn about $36,000 yearly.
